Tom Waits: Too Cool to Tour

In 1975 Dutch journalist Constant Meijers slept on my couch in LA for six weeks. He used me as his photographer for his magazine OOR.

In April 1977 on a sunny spring day, some music journalists and myself were invited to join Fleetwood Mac on a boat touring the harbor in Rotterdam.

March 29th marks the 50th anniversary of a staple in the Amsterdam music scene.
